"The framers of our country recognized that information freely gathered and freely disseminated is of paramount importance", and thus enshrined in the constitution, she said.

Cognizant of heated feelings on the issue, the Globe hired extra security on Thursday, said Jane Bowman, newspaper spokeswoman.
